Questions for ecologists working outside of academia

Hi everyone,

I am a recent graduate with a B.S.c in zoology and I am currently working a lab tech position in an ecology lab for further experience. I was hoping to hear back about your various journeys that lead you to your positions whether you’re working as a consultant, for an agency, outreach, or something else all together. I am still deciding on what direction I want to go in so any type of feedback would be fantastic!
